Well. This is debatable. Many plugins are optimized for certain input levels. It's fairly common. Also, if you work in any kind of hybrid analog/digital environment you have to be conscious about levels. I would also argue that keeping your levels under control for monitoring will always be important, and of course this is easier if you have your metering in order. YMMV.
